My Current Windows Development Machine Software Stack

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit.  It had been a really long time since I listed the current tools, SDKs, and frameworks that I’ve been using.  Thus here’s my entourage of software that I use on a regular basis that is installed on my primary development machines.

Basic Software & System OS

Administration Utilities

Themes & Such

In addition to these packages of software another as important, if not more important to my day-to-day software development includes these software services and cloud hosting services.

SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS

Software I will be adding to the stack within the next few days, weeks, and months.

Windows Phone 7 Calendar Control

I’ve been doing some Windows Phone 7 development and research into what is and is not available in the beta.  A fellow coworker of mine and I stumbled upon the sad realization that there isn’t a calendar control at this time!  Is this really true Windows Phone 7 team!?!?

Even Bing says no control.  🙁

Does anyone else out there in the blogosphere or twitterverse know if there is something available, or that may be available very soon?

This is something that absolutely needs to be in the RTP of the Windows Phone 7 SDK when it is released, and am honestly surprised it isn’t available now.
